While all of the different testing companies boast helpful internal tools, it's important to familiarise yourself with the many excellent third party tools that can aid you on your DNA testing journey. This presentation will provide an overview of all the major and minor third party tools available and will include practical hints and tips on how to get the most out of them. These tools can help with understanding, interpreting and organising your DNA results and, ultimately, can contribute to how successful you are in identifying matches and making family history breakthroughs via DNA.

Part Number: W9RECONTRE_

Price: $9.95
A genetic family tree is the list of genealogical ancestors from whom you inherited DNA. One of the goals of genetic genealogy is to recreate this genetic family tree through a process called “chromosome mapping.” Chromosome mapping uses cousin matches to identify which segments of DNA came from which ancestors, thus recreating your genetic family tree. We’ll look at the fundamentals of chromosome mapping and some tools you can use to begin to map your DNA.

Part Number: WXNFTDNA_

Price: $9.95
Geoff is ready to close the case of the parentage of Nathan Brown. Traditional genealogy research has built a solid case, and now he wants to solidify the findings by adding DNA to the evidence. He recently located one of Nathan’s living, male, Brown-surnamed descendants who agreed to take the test - a YDNA test from FamilyTreeDNA.com. The results are in, and he is hoping that the DNA supports his theory. Is Jeremiah Brown really Nathan’s father or is it time to look up a different tree?

On hand to guide, interpret and explain what Geoff discovers will be DNA expert, webinar presenter, and yourDNAguide.com’s Diahan Southard. The result will be a live and unscripted session giving DNA neophyte researchers (like Geoff) a first-hand look at what to expect from a YDNA test.
